- A Crafty moment
If you’re finding it challenging to come up with ideas on what to do for Valentine's Day, try doing a craft together. Ask your partner to help you create something special.

- Be kids at heart
One of the most fun ways to spend Valentine's Day is to reunite with your inner child. Celebrate this special day with a night of board games.
